Whats in a view? A sense of enhanced freedom and self awareness. A sudden realization of being a little being in a huge universe. San Diego's stunning coastline, rolling hills and diverse topography lend it to some of the best views in the world - if you know where to look.
An electric orange, pink and red sunset reflecting on the water or crystal blue skies shimmering over the sky rise windows of downtown, all evoke a different emotion in visitors and locals alike. We all strive for the semblance of something more and somehow a beautiful view does it for us. From those looking for the romance of a sunset stroll or a secluded hike opening up to an expansive view, San Diego is full of special places with one of a kind scenery.
- Torrey Pines State Reserve: Torrey Pines is a truly one of a kind location in San Diego. This nature reserve is home to oceanfront hiking trails sprinkled with rare Torrey Pines on the bluffs above the beach. From atop the bluffs, guests can see all the way from La Jolla Cove to the beaches of Del Mar while hiking among the natural foliage of Southern California. With lookouts, benches to sit on and an unforgettable waterfront location, Torrey Pines State Reserve boasts some of the best views in San Diego.
- Mission Beach: The beaches and boardwalk of Mission Beach is a popular destination for locals and visitors looking to soak up the quintessential San Diego beach experience. With an oceanfront wooden roller coaster, miles of paved boardwalk and massive white sand beaches, Mission Beach is an incredible spot for a sunset stroll in San Diego. Just to the north is Pacific Beach and the iconic Crystal Pier with an old time charm that drips of seaside romance.
- Mount Soledad: Located in the affluent coastal community of La Jolla, Mount Soledad is a prominent landmark with unparalleled San Diego views. Mount Soledad is also a veteran's memorial and relatively controversial with a huge concrete cross adorning the peak. From the top, guests can see the beaches of San Diego all the way from North County to Point Loma as well as a stunning view of East County and the beautiful mountains of San Diego. It's a great destination for people looking to get away from it all and get lost in the beauty of San Diego.
